Sticky Genomes: Using NGS Evidence to Test Hybrid Speciation Hypotheses

Table 2

Alpha-actinin cDNA sequence diversity illustrates that allelic diversity of the stick insect Acanthoxyla geisovii is greater than within Clitarchus hookeri as expected of a hybrid.

Within Acanthoxyla geisovii the SNP variant (allele) most similar to Clitarchus hookeri has approximately one third the expression level (inferred from read coverage) because this genome is triploid.
